Black, grey or green, it’s none of your effing business! for gods sake grow up-No wonder the society is in the mess that it is!”

In our opinion, On all the celebrity Independence Day posts Actresses were actually trying to show their love for Pakistan by wishing their fans and asking them to love and protect their country. But instead of focusing on their message, they were more interested in what they were wearing.
It’s now time we take our responsibility to use social media platforms to raise awareness about important subjects not discussing what celebrities are wearing. It’s their choice to wear what they want to not ours
